BLENDED TRACKED PANO (vertical panorama)
This was my first Milky Way at Lake Superior during Perseid's meteors shower.
Lake Superior is the north-western lake of the Great Lakes of North America ad it is the largest among them (so wide that I feelt like I was walking along a seashore when I was there first!)
Lake Superior's size reduces the severity of the seasons of its humid continental climate. The water surface's slow reaction to temperature changes and helps to moderate surrounding air temperatures in the summer and winter, and creates 'Lake Effect Snow' in colder months. That means a huge quantity of snow for me! (definitely not ready to it !😖😰😨)
Anyway, this pic is from my second night of the 2 days hike there. Despite fog and humidity I managed to take few pictures of the starry sky before my lens fogged up! The water in the foreground is not actually the huge Lake Superior, but a smal in-shore lake just literally 3 m from it!
Swear it ! I've never seen so many meteors in my life all together and the air-glow was quite intense too (few other shots are completely green 😂). Even if I stepped up two snakes and the strange noises from the wild wood, it was an incredible experience ! .
Vertical panorama composed by 5 tracked shots at the Milky Way at 20 mm, f4.5 , iso1600, 270sec than cropped and 3 focus-stacked shots at the fore ground taken at blue hours.
